Having bald spots can be an embarrassing condition. Techniques are available using hair extensions to cover your bald spots, until growth occurs. Bald spots can occur because of bad hair care, unexpected events, or a disease known as alopecia. A quick weave is a type of hair extension technique that does not require a certain hair thickness or length. The quick weave hairstyle covers your entire head, leaving your bald spots unnoticed.

Pull your hair into a ponytail. Comb the hair back until it is completely flat. Grab the hair into a low position. Wrap the rubber band around the hair until it is in a secure ponytail.

Place the wig cap on. Spray your hair with spritz. Blow dry the wet hair until it is partly dry. Place the cap over your head. Make sure the cap covers all of your hair. Continue to blow dry your hair, until the hair is completely dry.

Apply the hair extensions. Measure the extension to the amount needed for the back of the head and cut the extension. Apply the bonding glue to the wefted part of the extension, then apply the extension to the wig cap starting at the back of the neck, in a circular direction. Hold the extension down with your fingertips for several seconds. Blow dry the extension until it is completely dry. Continue applying the extensions until you reach the center of the head. For the closure space, cut the extensions into small measurements and apply them until the space is closed.

Style the hair. If the extensions are made of human hair, use curling or flat irons. If the extensions are synthetic, use rollers to curl the hair.
